There was too much rehash of old information out there and not the answers I wanted. For example, it is interesting to think of substituting Western State Fall Color for East Coast Color, but they are vastly different trips. Under East Coast Color I had hoped for THE BEST COLOR CRUISE (there are many on the market --Crystal, Holland etc), or the best Inn, and so on. Or out Westto suggest a unique activity. When analyzing European River Cruises there should be specific ship recommendations. It would have been nice to learn how to book ships to see the wildlife and birds on the various Falkland Islands and South Georgia Islands FROM THE FALKLANDS -- supposedly substantially cheaper than from the U.S.
Having been there we would like to do it again. I could list many, many omissions and differet opinions about places in this book.

Mostly we felt the ideas were pedestrian. We travel alot and the ideas here seemed pitched more to those who don't travel all that much. Wen you name a book the way this book is named, you should really come up with the goods.

Way to state the obvious. Go to California for wine. Kentucky for whiskey. Wisconsin for cheese. Scotland for Scotch. Germany for beer seriously?

Still wonderful for ideas -- three years into using it.

Sure, it is superficial. You can always get more information from dozens of sources.

But to break out of boxes -- give it a shot.

This book is impossible to summarize, but a quick review of the table of contents, which is wonderfully interactive on my iPhone, is almost certain to kick up one or a dozen or maybe a hundred different places and activities that would be fun and educational to visit.

Greenberg travels over 400,000 miles a year, publishes regularly in "The New York Times", and maintains a very useful website with daily and weekly emails, usually with interesting, but always current, content. Best of all, if you find Greenberg in a mistake, post a comment, and he invariably gets back to you within a short period of time.

Here's a short example of what you can expect, in this case Signature Dishes:

"So what's a signature dish? You know how chefs like to describe their last meal? We'll Peter doesn't have just one meal. Nor does he have just one restaurant. Instead, he has favorite signature dishes -- individual dishes at restaurants that represent his favorite foods from all around the world.

"Smoke Gouda & Artichoke Dip, Pumpkin Hill Bistro & Vineyard. In Aurora, New York, head to Pumpkin Hill Bistro & Vineyard for this seductive blend of four cheeses, spinach and roasted artichokes. It's served bubbling hot with toasted pita.

"Corned Beef Hash, Hash House a Go Go. In Las Vegas, Nevada, it's good to start the day with a hearty breakfast with every single option. Go off the strip to try all the hashes. And as you can see the portions are huge.
